Out in a very muddy part of Battersea, filming the title sequence for The Event. The kind ladles and jellyspoons have bought me the cheapest black suit from Burtons so that I don’t slop all over my nice ones. This one makes a ‘sshh’ sound as I walk.

Cary Grant, famed for his sartorial brilliance, apparently was a famous stinge and only wore cheap Burtons suits himself when off-camera. Yet, being Cary Grant, he pulled it off, and people never guessed.

When you see this sequence air, be quietly aware that the suit makes a ‘sshh’ sound and I’m wearing knee-high thermal socks.
